American Outdoor News presented their first annual Lifetime Achievement Award to Mr. Whitetail, Larry Weishuhn during the Dallas Safari Club Convention. The American Outdoor News Lifetime Achievement Award honors an individual who has dedicated their life to preserve our outdoor lifestyle, traditions and heritage for future generations to enjoy. Larry Weishuhn has lived up to that commitment through his work as a wildlife biologist. It was through his work as a wildlife biologist that he established over 15 million acres for wildlife management programs.
Larry has personally mentored many hunters & outdoorsmen/women over the course of his career. He has had an impact on thousands more through his books, articles, blogs, TV shows and podcasts. He also mentored many young outdoor writers, editors and publications. In fact, Larry was the first person to reach out to American Outdoor News when we first launched our publication. His friendship and guidance has been invaluable to me and many other fledgling writers and publications. It is with great honor that we present our first annual American Outdoor News Lifetime Achievement Award to Larry Weishuhn.
